Welcome to The Gift of Interdependence

What is Soul Matters?

UUCJ subscribes to Soul Matters, a UU-based organization that develops, researches, curates, and crowd-sources theme-based resources. Every month, Soul Matters delves into a new spiritual theme which we integrate into our worship services.

We also make use of their monthly resource packs to provide valuable materials for families, small groups, the worship team, and communications. These resources are designed to educate, inspire, and enhance spiritual growth.

Parent’s can download monthly packets –entitled “Soulful Home”– to use at home with their children. This resource provides parents with tools and activities to help them support their child’s spiritual development outside of church.

We provide a small group packet to members as well. This packet, used in our Chalice Circles, encourages deeper engagement with the monthly theme.

At UUCJ, we strive to create a welcoming environment where everyone can deepen their spiritual understanding and connect with others in meaningful ways. Our partnership with Soul Matters enables us to provide quality resources and programming that support this mission.

The Monthly Theme

The monthly theme for this month is “Interdependence.”

Bring Us Close to the Earth

Rev. Lyn Cox

Ground of our being,
Root of unified mystery…
Bring us together now.
Bring us close to the earth,
Ear to the whispering grass…
Help us to re-member.
Help us to piece together
Our one-ness with matter,
Our one-ness that matters…
